While battery-operated candles may be convenient, there’s nothing like the flicker and scent of the real deal, especially around the holidays. Few candlemakers offer the variety of styles and fragrances as Kansas City’s own Mixture.
The seven-ounce Artic Fill shown here is resplendent in hand-blown glass. Some of our favorite new scents are Holiday Seduction (with orange, clove and cinnamon) and Siberian Fir. The last one reminds co-owner Dan DeLeon of family treks to the tree farm to find the perfect Scotch pine.
Find Mixture candles at STUFF in Brookside, Studio Dan Meiners, Alissa’s and Scandinavia Place in Independence, Good Looks in Lee’s Summit and Featherstone in Overland Park.
